LOOK: 12 sexy swimsuit OOTDs to try this summer
1. High-Waisted Maillot
A maillot is typically considered a more modest beachwear option, but you can totally amp things up by opting for one with a super high-waisted cut. It covers most of your tummy while still accentuating your waistline.
2. One-Piece with Midriff Cutout
If you want to flaunt your abs, but don't feel like slipping into seperates, throw on a one-piece that has an opening made just for them. Ones in black will have you looking extra sleek!
3. One-Piece with Sheer Panel
For a more low-key way to flaunt your bod, try out a one-piece with a sheer panel by your tummy area. It only gives a peekaboo of your figure, but still displays it in all its glory. The black of the sheer also makes for some nice contrast against colorful and bright patterns.
4. V-Neck Maillot with Cutouts
If you ever chance upon an ultra-sultry, cutout-adorned maillot such as this one below, we implore you to immediately cop it. (Here's a secret we're letting you in on: the cutouts are actually netted, so it's not as risque as it looks!) This is a 'fit that'll certainly turn heads at the beach.
5. Dual-Tone One-Piece Swimsuit
Looking like a vixen doesn't necessarily mean baring all of your skin. Sometimes, all it takes is some strategic choice of colors. Hunt for a swimmie that has one of its hues matching with your skin tone for an illusion of racy cutouts. Pro tip: if your suit has stripes of some sort, vertical or slanted lines can make you appear more slender since it directs the eyes to go up and down!
6. Backless Swimsuit "Top"
Get creative with your beach looks and wear your boleros or cover-ups as swimwear! Put them on backwards and you instantly get a fresh, back-flaunting swimmie to pair with your bottoms.
7. Animal-Print Bikini
Another way to incorporate some flair to your bathing suits is to don them in fierce animal prints. In our book, you can never, ever go wrong with leopard or snakeskin motifs.
8. Halter Bikini
The halter bikini will always be one of our most favorite styles. The neckline never fails to add that effortlessly sultry touch to your 'fits, making it a must-have in every tropical hubadera's arsenal.
9. Strappy Backless One-Piece
It's a party in the front, and a party in the back with these kinds of maillots. The more straps, the better, we say. Take it up a notch and choose ones in a fun, neon hue.
10. Strappy Bikini Top and Tanga
Tankinis are proof that less is definitely more. These will flatter anyone's figure, plus they're also great ways to showcase any cool tatts by your bikini area.
11. Triangle Bikini
A triangle-shaped bikini will do wonders in complementing your bust. If tanning is your thing, these will also make sure that you get the most even of results. Plus points if you can grab a set in a fetching monogram print.
12. Bikini Top with Ring Detail
Even the most minute of details, such as a ring tying together your bikini top, can make all the difference with your look. It's that extra oomph your poolside OOTDs need!
13. Bikini with Chain Straps
Similarly, chained straps can imbue a sultry, femme fatale vibe to your two-piece. You can even match the hue of the straps to your jewelry for a more cohesive look.
